Jose Mourinho: Radamel Falcao arrival allows Chelsea to play two in attack

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner feels Jose Mourinho's comments are to fire up his players following the continued influx of money being spent by Premier League clubs, but Craig Burley is not surprised that clubs are now "buying titles."
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his Premier League rivals are now the ones attempting to buy their way to glory, a charge that used to levelled at the Blues.
Former Chelsea player and current Wolfsburg forward Andre Schurrle has backed his old club to retain the Premier League title in the coming season.

Jose Mourinho said he is ready to field two strikers at times this season and that all three Chelsea forwards have "special motivations" to show their worth.

Mourinho selected Diego Costa alone in attack last season when the Spain international was fit, with Didier Drogba and Loic Remy deputising in his absence.

With Drogba having departed and Radamel Falcao having arrived on loan, though, Mourinho said he now has more tactical options as he looks to ensure Chelsea are less predictable this season.

"I think so," Mourinho told The Guardian. "I don't like players or managers...

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes Arsenal are ready to challenge for the Premier League crown this season.

Arsene Wenger has delivered three Premier League titles since replacing Bruce Rioch as manager in 1996, but the Gunners have finished no higher than third in each of the past 10 seasons as the Frenchman often shunned big-money signings in favour of developing young talent.

Arsenal finished 13 points behind Chelsea last season as the Blues won the Premier League at a canter, but Mourinho...

Unsung Willian still with room to improve

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner feels Jose Mourinho's comments are to fire up his players following the continued influx of money being spent by Premier League clubs, but Craig Burley is not surprised that clubs are now "buying titles."

Within Chelsea's squad over the last few years, by far the most competitive area has concerned the attacking midfield. The high turnover of players in that department and the myriad options for successive managers has formed the basis for the new approach in Chelsea's play -- one based upon craft and finesse in place of power and force of will.

Despite the constant churn of options behind the main striker, some constants remain. Eden Hazard has risen to become the most dazzling individual at the...
